  • The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?

    In his bravest and most challenging book yet, Seth Godin shows how we can thrive in an economy that rewards art, not compliance. He explains why true innovators focus on trust, remarkability, leadership, and stories that spread. And he makes a passionate argument for why you should be treating your work as art. Art is not a gene or a specific talent. It's an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don't, and the guts to do something about it.

    Story

    This is a must read for educators, business folks, and human beings in general. The material can be very far reaching if spread to the right places! As a newly retired educator, I can affirm that this is not the direction that our educational system is headed, but the leadership needs to have this material in hand... and as quickly as possible for the sake of the students! (Quite frankly, it will be very welcome to the teaching artists in the classroom!)
    Seth Godin is a genius! Now that I am working in my own business, I hear him quoted everywhere I go. This book is one of the many reasons why.

    Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate Friday's level of contentment and joy every day of the week. Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

    Where does Every Day a Friday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I usually like to listen to an audiobook read by the author because it adds authenticity. This is no exception. Joel is an excellent speaker and that comes across in his audio book as well. I bought this on audio partially because of that . I have the print versions of his other books. I love the personal tone that he takes. His warmth and energy comes through very well, Well worth the money.

  • Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success

    Do you ride the escalator or do you take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world", one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end - and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.

    What did you learn from Take the Stairs that you would use in your daily life?

    Hard work may not make you a million bucks, but it's the only way to self respect and inner/outer happiness.

    Energizing... I need to keep listening again and again for weekly doses of inspiration!

    As one of America's preeminent comedic voices, George Carlin saw it all throughout his extraordinary 50-year career and made fun of most of it. Last Words is the story of the man behind some of the most seminal comedy of the last half century, blending his signature acer-bic humor with never-before-told stories from his own life.

    Joe Crescenzi says: "Outstanding insight... Well read"

    What did you love best about Last Words?

    It was interesting and informative, although not as funny as I was expecting. It really gave a clear picture about where George Carlin came from and what his life was all about, mostly in his own words.

    What was the tipping point for Malcolm Gladwell? What unscripted event made Meryl Streep who she is? How did Mario Batali cook up his recipe for success? In this inspiration-packed book, Katie Couric reports from the front lines of the worlds of politics, entertainment, sports, philanthropy, the arts, and business.

    If you could sum up The Best Advice I Ever Got in three words, what would they be?

    I really got a lot out of this book. I would have bought it as written text, but I really enjoyed
    listening to it, piece by piece.


    Any additional comments?

    Each piece of advice was unique, yet all advice was divided into sections so that it made sense within the context of the book. There were also introductions for the sections by Katie Couric, which were all enchanting. I will surely listen to it more than once and definitely get my money's worth!
